Something Borrowed

10:15 AM

If any of you fashion bloggers have been following Idee Geniale's blog, you would have seen this outfit post a few days ago: 
 I saw this out fit and thought to myself "hey I think I can do that" and so I ransacked my closet this week to come up with my own version of her adorable outfit. I have here another pair of pants from the Salvation Army (that I snagged for $3) and a sweater from F21 (about 3 years ago). Not only did I borrow the look from Mel, but to complete this outfit, I had to borrow a grey tank from Kyle and his dress socks. Voila: my version.
The hardest part of the outfit was the hair. Mel's is shown a little looser (and really cute) but my hair is shorter and the only way to get it to stay was to spray on the hairspray. I really liked the scarf under the headband though, made it look a little more unique. 
Kyle even took a close-up to show of the necklaces. The little silver one is from my friend Anne, it says "Paris" on it and opens up (we took French together and we are obsessed with going to France now).  The second is an owl necklace that my friend Mariah picked out at F21 on Sunday. :)

Want a random fact? One random fact post coming up: I never thought of it as a big deal, until recent incidents. Now, when I post something on facebook, people who do not know me, ask my friends if my name is my real name. No one even knew who HE was until the "Rick-Roll" phenomena, but my last name is Astley. I have a great Uncle in Canada who swears that the Astley clan is related to the 80's pop singer, but I have yet to see real proof, I only have his word. However, if there is some proof that I can share with you guys, I will be more than happy to at that point. For now, I blame my super-rich, shared-a -great-grandfather-with-freaky haired cousin for the you tube incident. (Even though teenagers are the most likely suspect.)
